Aug. 30, 1825 and died at her home in the village of Friendship on Feb. 4, 1903, death resulting from dropsy of the heart. She was married to Nathan J. Marble of the state of New York on Sept 27, 1847. The next year they moved to Ohio, where they lived until the spring of 1864, when they came to Wisconsin. To Mr. & Mrs. Marble was born one daughter, Frances, now Mrs. Smith Utter of the town of Lewiston, Columbia Co., Wisconsin. The husband and daughter were continually with Mrs. Marble during her last illness and when death came. Since 1892 Mr. and Mrs. Marble have lived in Friendship. On account of poor health and the severe deafness with which she was afflicted, Mrs. Marble mingled little with the village people, but she always cherished for them a feeling of kindness and a hearty welcome for any of the neighbors. Mrs. Marble was a woman of large and ready sympathies and her heart ever beat responsively to the pains and poverty of suffering humanity. No deserving, needy fellow creature, appealing to her for aid, was ever sent forth empty handed. In early life she united with the M. E. Church, but as she grew older and came in contact with people of different views, she found faults in all denominations. She, therefore, chose the middle ground and lived in accord with the Golden Rule, always trying to do unto others as she would have others do unto her. This she followed, as all know, to the best of her ability. Funeral services were held at the home Saturday afternoon, conducted by Rev. John Hemmeter. Appropriate music was rendered by a quartet consisting of Mr. and Mrs. N. M. Jones, Mrs. J. W. Purves and P. G.

He sold that to his son Frank, and erected a shop of his own in which he had perfected some invention, and was working on others, one an ideal power for automobiles.

From there they went by wagon to Madison, moving from there to Fall River. Later in the same year, they came north, settling in the town of Preston, Adams County, on a farm 3 miles east of Cottonville as it was then called.

The sentiment of her life, as we believe are expressed by words of Tennyson. Sunset and Evening Star, And one clear call for me And may there be no moaning of the bar. When I put out to sea; But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and Evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell When I embark; For tho from out our bourne of time and place, The flood shall bear me far, I hope to see the Pilot Face to Face When I have crossed the bar. Funeral services were held at her home in Plainfield Tuesday afternoon at 12:30 and at Big Flats church, conducted by Rev. W. H. Slack, and interment was made in the Big Flats cemetery.

McConick - 1827-1899 Surname: MCCONICK, SNYDER, CLARK From Adams County Press (Friendship, WI), September 9, 1899, page 5: Dwight Lidell McConick, brief mention of whose death was made in the PRESS of last week, died at his home in the town of New Haven on Friday, August 25, 1899, of Bright's disease. Mr. McConick was born in Exeter, Ostego [sp] Co., N.Y.,, December 19, 1827 [family bible says 1828], and was therefore 71 years, 8 months and 7 days old at the time of his death. In February, 1850 [family bible says March], he was married to Miss Caroline Clark of Burlington Green, in the same county, a most estimable [sp] and amiable lady who proved her worth by a life of affectionate devotion to her husband and family. In 1857 Mr. McConick came west with his family. They arrived at Davis Corners, then a somewhat noted stopping place for people passing between Portage and the lower WIsconsin to Grand Rapids, Plover and the Wisconsin river pineries. Mr McConick purchased land in the town of Jackson, near to Davis Corners, and diligently set about the building of a home. Settlers were few and widely scattered. Big Spring had been settled as early as in the late 30's. Oxford was already a little hamlet, and Cascade (now White Creek) had risen to the dignity of having a sawmill and a, for the time, very respectable store. But the intervening country between all these points was little more than an unbroken wilderness. Mr. McConick remained for twenty years on his place at Davis Corners. He early took a deep interest in public affairs. He was several times chairman of his town, and was regarded as a shrewd, safe counselor and officer. At the time the manner of supporting the poor was changed from the town to the county system. Mr. McConick, the late L.W. Holmes of Big Flats, and G.W. Waterman of Friendship were chosen as the first three commissioners under the county system. Considering the bitter opposition the change aroused, it must now be said that the administration of these gentlement proved to be wise, conservative and successful. In 1877 he moved his family to the homestead where he was residing at the time of his death. Mr. McConick was a member of the Episcopal church, and for more than fifty years had been a faithful and devoted member of the order of Odd Fellows, and a member of the Briggsville lodge at the time of his death. He was genial and pleasant in his intercourse with his fellowmen, and drew to himself a large circel of attached and devoted friends. His health had been failing for the past two-and-a-half years. He realized more fully than wife or children knew the full character of the disease that had him in its toil; but bravely, patiently, seemingly cheerfully, he fought the battle and fell in a contest where it was victory to so fall. He leaves a widow, two children - Frank McConick of Friendship, and Mrs. Orilla Snyder, wife of Chas. L. Snyder of New Haven, with a large circle of friends to mourn the loss of a devoted and affectionate husband, father and friend. The funeral was at the family residence, the Rev. Arthur Gorter of the Episcopal Church in Kilbourn administering according to the rites of that Church. The remains were laid to rest in Crooked Lake Cemetery, in Jackson, with the beautiful and impressive ceremonies of the order of Odd Fellows.

Possessing rare graces of mind and heart, she deservedly was the idol of her home and esteemed and beloved by all. Of her it might truthfully have been written--"None knew her but to love her--None named her but to praise." The funeral was held at the Congregational church on Sunday, and the large number of people attending the services showed how far the gentle and sweet influences of the young life just ended had reached--how universal the sorrow for her decease. It is said that more than a hundred carriages followed the remains to their last resting place.

MCWYMIE Native American Indian MCWYMIE, d. 1888 Surname: MCWYMIE From the March 31, 1888 Adams County Press, Page 4 The old Indian, McWYMIE, who formerly lived in the Town of New Haven, but whose home for the past four or five years has been on the Big Roche-A-Cris in the Town of Preston, died at his home on Saturday evening last. McWYMIE had been sick all winter, wasting away with consumption, and but for the kindly sympathy and aid of white men must have suffered greatly during his last illness. McWYMIE was an honest Indian. No white man ever feared to trust his word. He was industrious and prudent, too, beyond most of his race. He seemed to realize there was something higher and better in the ways and condition of the white men than in that of his own race, and he longed to reach as near as possible the white man's condition. He made his home among them, built a house, had horses and cattle, and lived, respecting and respected among them; and few indeed, were there of white people who had known him, who did not feel a tender regret when the news came to them that McWYMIE had died. He lived well up to the best light he had, and over "in the Happy Hunting Grounds" of the good and blest Indians who have preceded him, let us hope he has found happiness, and conditions where the higher aspirations of his being may find a fuller reward, and a broader development than was possible in this life.

Although all means were used for his recovery, he quietly passed away at about 5 o'clock on January 6, 1903. He will long be remembered as a kind and industrious friend and neighbor, ever ready to help in time of need; ever considerate and generous to others, and honest in all his business transactions, his loss will be keenly felt in the community.

Still living at or near that place are his widow and two sons, Forrest and Claude. Eleven years ago, Rette, the only daughter, died, and it was the painful duty of the writer of this to assist in laying all that was mortal of that sweet child in the cemetery at White Creek, where on Sunday last many kind friends and neighbors in sympathy with the bereaved, laid his remains beside those of his beloved daughter. He has two brothers still living in the state of New York. I thought very much of his genial, friendly, Quaker ways, some of his forefathers being of that sect. I think that after twenty years' acquaintance with Charles METEYARD, I can truly say: "I find no fault in the man." ---James H. McChesney MIETZKE, Mrs. E. Mrs. E.

MORGAN, Frank From the Adams County Press, Saturday Oct 17, 1885, Page 4 Two Men Drowned Last Sunday forenoon, two young men, Ellsworth HARWOOD, son of J. W. HARWOOD of New Chester, and Frank MORGAN of Jackson, were drowned in Wolf Lake, a small but very deep body of water in the latter town. The facts, as we gather them, are these: The two young men were out together on the lake, in a boat. In another boat were also a party of young ladies and gentlemen. Just before the catastrophe, HARWOOD and MORGAN were noticed by the other party, and were standing up in the boat apparently engaged in a playful scuffle. For a moment the attention of the observers was attracted away, and when they next looked around, HARWOOD and MORGAN were both in the water and their boat capsized. The men with the young ladies hurried to the shore to land the ladies, as their boat already had all the load it could carry, and that done, hastened with all possible speed to assist the drowning men; but before they could reach them, both had sunk to the bottom not to rise again alive. The bodies were recovered about three o'clock in the afternoon, after being in the water about four hours. The funeral was on Tuesday last, and was attended by a very large number of people, the solemn services being conducted by Rev. P. R. Staples, of this place, and Rev. Angus Sellers of Oxford. The remains of the drowned men were interred in the cemetery at Oxford.

Mrs. MOSHURE was the mother of thirteen children, eleven of whom-four daughters and seven sons-survive her. An energetic, industrious woman, her home and her family composed her world. To her friends she was ever the same true and steadfast friend, and there are many to testify to the hearty good cheer with which she welcomed them and the eagerness with which she tried to make their stay pleasant and enjoyable. Especially welcome were the young people, the friends of her children. A great lover of the beautiful, Mrs. MOSHURE found time amid her manifold duties and cares to surround her home with flowers. Her health had not been good for some years, and of late she had suffered greatly. All that medical skill and loving care and constant watchfulness could do has been done to lessen her sufferings. Though she had been failing for several months, yet the end came suddenly and the children and grandchildren who were summoned from Necedah arrived too late to be recognized: while the son who came from Chicago found his mother prepared for burial, when he reached the old home. The funeral services were at the house, Rev. SEARLES of Necedah, officiating. Mother is dead! How chill the sound, How quiet seems the world around. And, oh, how lonely is the day Since mother, dear, has passed away. From 'local brevities': Eugene MOSHURE, of Chicago, was a pleasant caller at the Press office on Wednesday.
